MA Drawing Peer Workshop – Jhih

IntroductionSketch is my favorite hobby in my daily life. When I found some nice landscape or interesting events, the first thing to do is decide a good “position”. Because, you get the good “position” which meaning is the good “viewpoint” as well. The “position” about where you stand also will affect the composition of your works.

Aim of the Workshop

In this peer workshop, I like to encourage everyone to rethinking the “position” of your drawing viewpoint. Try to keeping changing your “position” when you are drawing a subject. Find a unique place that can help you to create a special viewpoint of work.
